Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somersworth District Curriculum
The Science curriculum focuses on introducing students to basic biological and physical processes, allowing them to become familiar with the scientific method. Students investigate the world around them through inquiry, and material is scaffolded from simpler to more complex ideas. Once secondary school begins, students are expected to explore specific processes and develop research skills which will help them test and validate scientific hypotheses.
The English Language Arts curriculum begins with a basic recognition of words, sentences, and grammatical structures. As students become comfortable with reading and writing they will be expected to expand their vocabulary, expressing themselves through the written word. Students will also be expected to demonstrate reading fluency, with both fiction and nonfiction prose. As students enter more advanced grades they will utilize research techniques, properly citing their work.

- Districtwide Changes - Students currently attending school at Somersworth will shift their enrollment across the state border to Maine beginning in 2015.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Rhetorical Devices: Synecdoche
One rhetorical device that is frequently used in writing, often without the writer even realizing it, is synecdoche. Synecdoche is the use of a word or phrase in which a part is referred to by its whole. For example, if you say that “the United States” won a medal at an event, you are not literally referring to the entirety of the United States, just the team that is representative of it. Similarly, you can refer to a whole by its individual parts. When you tell someone about a new set of wheels you received, you are most likely referring to a vehicle of some sort, not just the wheels themselves.
